Space is the Place: Star Clocks

For Students in Third through Fifth Grade. Our current concept of time is based on the motion and position of the sun, but how would you determine what time it is without clocks or the sun? Participants
will explore the world before clocks, when people determined what the time was without them. Using simple materials, participants will construct their very own star clock, also known as a nocturnal, and discover how it can be used to map the changing of time by utilizing the stars as their guide. Registration is required.
